Felix Borowskl s criticisms:
Th American premier of Wolf-Ferrari's
opera, "Th Jewel of the Ma
donna." took place last night in the
Auditorium before one of the season
brilliant audiences. Entirely apart from
th world-wide interest that attaches to
th first American production of the work
of a ' European composer of not, Ihe
event achieved that artistic importance
that belongs to the worthy presentation
of a masterpiece. The triumph that re
sulted for the composer who was present
the oonductor. the- director, and the
principals need not be discounted in this
Instance, because of th hysterical excite
ment thst obtains on such ocoasions. but
nisy stand as the verdict of the public.
Th reception accorded the Wolf-Ferrari
novelty was second only In demon
strative enthusiasm to the success of
".Natoma." the reason for the difference
lying, probably, In Ihe fact that our
public understands English better than
iiwisfi. oioaaumi in vuriain vena alio
demands for repetitions, the approval of
last night's audience gslned Impressive
dimensions. The composer, the principal.
tlie conductor, the director and the stage
manager were called before the curtain
ten times after the first act and as msny
times after the second. The preludes to
the second and third acts hnd to be re
peated. Also there were rumerous floral
tributes for all concerned.
"Tit Jewels of th Madonna" Is th
significant opera of the decade. It merits
this distinction by reason of the beauty
and dramatie truth of the music, Ihe
vivid realism of th action, th pathos
of its culminating tragedy. The beauty,
of th mualc is (he pur beauty of .
melody. Wolf-Ferrari has restored to I
the art that simplicity and directness of.

'Therefor there should be no suffrage:
beoaus women are not men' equal, but

The statements ' were made by Dr.
Ignaxo Nltobe, president of th First Na

Th subject chiien by the Japanese
scholar for his Chicago talk waa 'The
Influence of America In Japan."
"I cannot ate any reason for women
being in politics." said Dr. Nltobe. "Th
